BIO

With driving drum beats, catchy hooks, and relatable lyrical content, Halifax, NS, Canada based group, Troy Alistair, is coming in swinging with captivating and energetic performances. Blurring the lines between rock, funk, rap, and pop music, you'll hear a primary blend of rock and rap, reminiscent of a modern day Linkin Park, or The Police. While each song varies in style, they all circle back to the universal themes of finding happiness, self-improvement, having fun, and not taking yourself too seriously.



STORY

Carrying on with his love of rock and hip-hop, frontman Taran Guest is no stranger to the musical scene on the East Coast. As a founding member of the group BROTHERS, he has spent the past few years honing his sound and songwriting abilities as the band toured behind their first full-length album, Zebra. Guest has enlisted a crew of local musicians to bring Troy Alistair to life, forming a tight-knit group.

Mixing the classic east coast riff-rock sound with some rap, the track (Jump the Gun) is upbeat and dance-worthy, fitting perfectly with the band’s aim to just have fun and get silly.
